Howdy Enemaniacs! Welcome back to the third feature in this month’s Blue March theme – Prisoner of Paradise!
For this entry, we’re bringing back a couple returning items. First, big daddy John Holmes is returning after taking a bow (among other things) in Dracula Sucks. We also travel back into the wild blue yonder of Nazisploitation – and I bet you are all real excited about that.
But, let me just say, you people are sick. You know how I know this? I know my blog’s stats. I know them well, I do. If I look at the top viewed posts, all FIVE of the movies marked with the “nazisploitation” tag rank in the top 13 posts. Then, on top of that, Dracula Sucks, the other released adult movie I’ve covered on this blog, also ranks in the top 10. The most viewed post at the time of this writing? The Lost Empire which has tits flopping all over the place in it. Continue reading “Prisoner of Paradise (1980)”
Blue March continues with not only another adult film, but an adult film directed by Anthony Spinelli. Spinelli was kind of known for his work in genres. Hey, it’s not just a prono, it’s a sci-fi/drama that deals with relationships and kinks and sexual inadequacy. This isn’t just a skin flick with a really hot redhead, it’s a film noir/crime drama type of movie too!
Dixie Ray Hollywood Star is the latter. We have a hot, but enigmatic redhead movie star, Dixie Ray, played by Lisa Deleeuw. She comes into contact (both figuratively and literally) with P.I. Nick Popodopolis, played by superstar adult actor John Leslie, who is caught up in a mystery after finding a dead woman on his floor.
Even better? This movie has the one, the only, Cameron Mitchell! Continue reading “Dixie Ray Hollywood Star (1983)”
I, the fine folks behind B-Movie Enema, would like to finally give into the base need and absolute expectation of all my friends to finally spend a month talking about blue movies. We’re going to start with the big budget 1978 movie, SexWorld, directed by Anthony Spinelli.
Whether you call these flicks porn, titty flicks, smut, stag films, skin flicks, erotica, filth, dirt, obscenity, or x-rated material, I feel like this is where my life and my blog has come to a… er… well, head. The decision to do this theme month was made over six months ago when the good people of Vinegar Syndrome had a big ol’ blue sale where they were selling X-rated flicks for, like, half off or something. I decided to get a stack of these movies so I can accept my destiny as “that guy” who watches “ever increasing smutty movies to keep writing about them.” Continue reading “SexWorld (1978)”
Australia – the land of scary ass deadly spiders, nasty snakes, kangaroos that will probably kick you in the balls, koalas with chlamydia, and movies!
The land down under has given us lots of entertainment over the years like Russell Crowe, Yahoo Serious, OG Mad Max, Paul Hogan. You know, people you probably don’t really want to hang out with (though Yahoo Serious is probably cool). Since about the 70s or so, they have been pumping out a certain brand of movies too usually referred to as “ozploitation”. These movies started rolling out over the 70s and 80s after the R rating was introduced. There are some spectacular entries under the ozploitation banner too – Mad Max, Thirst, Dead End Drive-In, and Patrick to just name a few. Thirst, is a particular favorite of mine.
The Wikipedia page discussing and listing Ozploitation films lists this week’s feature, Sheborg (aka SheBorg Massacre) as one of the newer films in the subgenre. Continue reading “Sheborg (aka SheBorg Massacre, 2016)”
When people find out I write a blog about movies, naturally they ask questions about what kinds of movies I discuss. They may ask, “Do you write about the art of cinema?” or “Do you talk about the films of [insert artsy-fartsy director name here]?” or “You talk about that there Grinch movie from 2000??? I liked that movie somethin’ fierce!” Normally, it comes down to me saying I write about B-movies, and that I’ve done it almost 150 times. That usually spurns the question, “So… Can you explain what those movies that you watch are like?”
To which I can give only this response: “They Bite.” Continue reading “They Bite (1996)”
Let’s talk about Norman J. Warren.
He’s someone who I’ve yet to really feature on this blog, but I will be correcting that big time from this point forward. He’s a British filmmaker who was always into the movies growing up. His films were often deemed part of British “New Wave” Horror. Basically, taking what Amicus and Hammer did with sexuality and gore and pushing it a little further for the end of the 70s and beginning of the 80s.
His movies are really interesting – and, in my opinion, actually fascinating and fun to watch, if not good. He seems to have ideas, even if what he starts with isn’t that groundbreaking. Want to tell a ghost story? Well, he’ll tweak it here and there and include a time element and give you Bloody New Year. Want to tell a story about an alien coming to Earth? Well, how about we throw in abuse and a lesbian couple and a sinister reason for the alien to be here and give you Prey. How about yet another alien story, but this time include impregnation and have the mother of the new alien/human hybrid become murderously protective of the monster? Yeah, we’ll call that Inseminoid. Continue reading “Terror (1978)”
You know what I haven’t had in a while? The sudden urge to kill myself out of utter desperation.
Er… I mean a Cannon Films movie. I… Um. That’s what’s I meant. Uh… Anyway, one thing that you can definitely say about the Cannon gurus Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus is that they sure think they know what people want. In the example of X-Ray (aka Hospital Massacre), they assumed we all wanted a slasher film in a hospital with a hot babe.
Their assumptions were right, but we also kind of want some sort of story that makes sense. Is that here in this movie? No? Yes? Not really? Continue reading “X-Ray (aka Hospital Massacre, 1982)”
Alrighty… I haven’t yet had enough of demons and devils and shit. So let’s keep that rolling with this week’s feature – Faust: Love of the Damned.
What’s really interesting about this movie is that it’s directed by Brian Yuzna who’s been involved in several great horror movies of the 80s from Re-Animator to From Beyond to Society to… Honey, I Shrunk the Kids…?!? No shit? Huh. Well, he also produced Ticks, a movie I familiarized myself with a couple months back. Continue reading “Faust: Love of the Damned (2000)”
